Madrid & Valencia, Spain
The Spanish pilot focuses on infrastructures in which people spend a significant portion of time on a daily basis: transportation and workplaces.
Interurban buses are the most used means of public transport in Spain, since they offer an inexpensive, sustainable, secure mode of transportation. The Madrid Sur Bus Terminal is used as a building testbed to monitor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) parameters.
Grupo ETRA deploys TwinAIR planned interventions in its building premises in Valencia that counts on traditional air conditioning systems aiming to improve worker’s comfort and health.
Dublin-Great Dublin Area, Ireland
Most of the local communities in Dublin and in the rest of the Great Dublin Area are concerned about the heavy traffic and related poor air quality around and indoors in schools in the affected areas. The pilot studies leverage the current citizen science activities in schools and the ongoing strong engagement with pupils and teachers to foster open science in schools regarding Indoor Air quality and the effects of the surrounding activities happening outside to the student.
Bristol, United Kingdom
The University of Bristol campus and Hospital buildings offer an testbed for studying the effects of indoor pollution to indoor spaces, as they are embedded in the city at a prime location and are not segregated behind any walled campus. The University of Bristol studies the effects of indoor pollution to workplaces, hospital spaces and primary schools including the SPHERE house, the We the Curious science center and the University Hospitals Bristol. A separate area of study related to mobility and the effects of emerging innovations is conducted including predominantly logistics vehicles.
Linköping University is one of Sweden’s larger academic institutions, located in three campus sites in the county of Östergötland: Valla, the University Hospital in Linköping and Campus Norrköping in the homonym city. Campus Norrköping is in the center of the city and lies on an existing urban mobility testbed already equipped with mobility and environmental data collection devices and a committed community of citizens, researchers, and students. Linköping University & Akademiska Hus model the environmental quality and also the perception of users of the infrastructure.
Centrum Industrial IT (CIIT) is Germanys’ first science to business center in the area of industrial automation and it is located within the Innovation Campus in Lemgo.The pilot studies in CIIT’s workspaces aim to illustrate more concrete use cases and advantages of digital twin technologies to the public and showcase its potentials to partners and young students that could be inspired to continue their academic career in the domain of industrial automation. The CIIT utilizes a centralized ventilation system, which parameters such as runtime, errors, power usage, air speeds and pressure can be accessed.
Trikala is a medium-sized provincial city and the capital of the Trikala regional unit in the middle of Greece. It has been declared as the 1st Digital City in Greece and was shortlisted as one of the top 21 smart cities in the world. The selected building stock includes 9 individual buildings and are situated all around the city center. Within the framework of the TwinAIR project, Municipality of Trikala focuses to learn from frontrunners in air quality management in Europe and invest more in expertise and innovation on smart monitoring efficiency solutions.
Thriasio General Hospital is located in the city of Elefsina, a suburban town and municipality in West Attica Region of Greece. In the surrounding area there is a major industrial zone with a population of over 100,000 inhabitants and several heavy industries. Thriasio General Hospital monitors the present situation in terms of Indoor Air Quality and the possible interactions with outdoor pollutants correlating the outcome with specific health problems. This pilot serves as a pilot for more active future intervention in the Greek hospitals of Indoor Air Quality, Health and Safety, Environmental Health and Public Health variants.
